COVID-19 vaccine

Who is getting the COVID-19 vaccine?

By Monica Manna

KNB posted a poll to LinkedIn and Twitter asking whether or not healthcare marketing and PR professionals  would opt to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Over 85% of participants in both surveys said they will receive the COVID-19 vaccination. However, 5-10% of readers are still not sure if they should. Therefore, let’s debunk myths and state the facts regarding the COVID-19 vaccination.

Quick COVID-19 vaccine facts:

Choosing not to receive either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine still leaves healthcare agency professionals and others in the healthcare industry at risk of contracting COVID-19. The CDC states that it is unsure how long it will take for herd immunity to take over. It should be noted that receiving the vaccine will not make you contract the virus.

Facts about COVID-19:

COVID-19 is highly contagious and new strains are developing rapidly. Personal side-effects and symptoms of the virus vary but can be fatal. If you are an asymptomatic carrier, then others near you are also in danger of contracting the virus. 

If you’re looking to learn more about the vaccine and how it works, watch this quick video below. 

 

The Pfizer-BioNTech Vaccine has a 95% efficacy rate. It is available for people ages 16 and older, who will receive two doses of the vaccine 21 days apart. Similarly, the Moderna vaccine has a 94.1% efficacy rate and is available for people 18 and older, receiving two doses 28 days apart.

Still not comfortable about the safety of the vaccine? See what the CDC has to say below.
